Bookmark "ART"

  Hi friends!! Josi Tomàs (@elbauldegiulietta) writes to you to show you a new bookmark. I am beginning to find it comfortable and essential to work in this format. Leave room for white and focus very well on the main element. What is your opinion?  I leave you the detailed images and a brief explanation of how I did it.  I have applied spray ink of two colors: maroon brown and pink. I personally really like this combination. I have also added a touch with splashes in both colors.  Then I made different prints to complete the background. Numbers and letters combined this time in pink and black to highlight. Finally, I have made a hot embossing with translucent glitter powders to give relief and a touch of special shine. The final decoration part is also very simple. I have painted the center of the flowers and I have stamped letters in some areas. Underneath the flower I have put an acetate butterfly and a bunch of threads (they cannot be missing in my projects).     I hope you enjo

Vintage Style Christmas Cards by Angie Coomber

 Hello arty friends, how are you all?  We really are hurtling towards Christmas, aren't we? I have made a couple of Christmas cards this time, I'm trying to be very organised this year. First I stamped theses lovely Poinsettias onto red and green scrapbook paper, book pages and ledger paper. I have some lovely old ledger paper that I used for these cards, both for the background and some of the images. I cut out the stamped images (I ended up with a good supply so that I can make more cards). I cut some squares from the ledger paper for the backgrounds and then glued the flowers and leaves onto them. Next I matted these onto some coloured card, glued them onto my card blanks and added some Tim Holtz Christmas Quote sticker. Now I'm off to make more!  Please excuse the poor picture quality this time, the weather has been absolutely awful here and it's almost impossible to find some good light! Until next time, hugs from Angie x Stamps used: Textured Christmas Green

Textured Christmas Tree Tags by Gail

Hello Rubber dance friends.  Gail here today and my thoughts are firmly on Christmas crafting.  I've made a trio of tags using the lovely Rubber Dance Textured Christmas Trees stamps and bows from Rubber Dance Cosy Christmas .   I used a Gummiapan Old Tag die to cut three tags from grungy card.  I stamped the trees, masked and stamped the hearts and stars which are also included in the Textured Christmas Trees set.  The bows are from Cosy Christmas , simply stamped on red card and fussy cut.   I love this set for all the lovely christmas accessories.   A great one if you are making some Christmas ephemera. I coloured the trees with distress markers. Textured Christmas Trees are available as red rubber or as an A5 clear set which includes some extra stamps! It's the last day today  Christmas stamps are 10% off!  If you are creating anything with Rubber Dance stamps this month, whatever your inspiration, please post a new project in our Facebook  group or over on Instagra

Witchy Wants by Samantha Read

Hello, Samantha here today and I'd like to share a little project I made for Hallowe'en. It's raining here today so the light was not great for taking photos but I think it makes it look even more spooky. I used two fun stamp sets, Little Witch and What A Girl Wants. I began by stamping out my chosen stamps and I then coloured them using watercolours. I used some MDF from my stash. I created the background using distress inks and sprays and also a stencil. I stamped some stars and created the moon using a Tim Holtz mask/stencil set. I added textured paste to the spider to give him texture. I finished by adding some inky splats, some pumpkin ornaments and some white highlights with a Posca pen. Here are the stamp sets I used; What a Girl Wants and Little Witch  I do hope you like it, for lots more fun and inspiration you can join the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge on Facebook, right here . Thanks so much for looking, wishing you a lovely day, Sam :)
